Friend Makin' Monday - Makeup Favorites

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers.  The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!
Friend Makin’ Mondays:  Makeup Favorites
1.  Do you wear makeup everyday?  I wear makeup on all weekdays, simply because I don't want to give my coworkers heart attacks.  The weekends tend to be more low-key, with less makeup.
2.  Does your routine change if you’re going out with friends/on a date/to a party?  If the hubs and I are going on a special date night or I am going to see folks I haven't seen in a while, I tend to try to make things a little more interesting.  Sometimes that just means a different color combo or actually putting on eyeliner and mascara.
3.  Are you loyal to one brand, or do you use different brands for different things?  I am Bare Escentuals girl!
4.  Do you wear primer/concealer? If so, what’s your favorite kind?  PrimeTime primer and Bare Minerals SPF 20 concealer
5.  What’s your favorite brand of foundation?  Bare Minerals Matte
6.  Do you use blush and/or bronzer?   Again...Bare Minerals... My favorite colors are "Joyous Jennifer" and "Giddy Pink" right now.  If I am not in the mood to do a lot, I use their "Warmth" product
7.  Do you wear eye shadow/eye liner?  I have several favorite Bare Minerals shades that I like to mix and match.  They tend to be in more neutral shades with a little spunk - Queen Phyllis, Celestine, and Dove with Hope, Passion, Imagination, or others in the crease of my eyelid.
8.  What’s your favorite kind of mascara?  I don't use mascara... Putting it on freaks me out.
10.  Lipstick? Lip gloss? Both? Favorite?  I don't tend to wear it often, even though the hubs begs me.  I love the Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips collection.
11.  Do you wear nail polish regularly?  If so, share a few of your favorite brands/colors.   Yes!  I go to a salon every few weeks to get a new color of OPI Axxium.  My current favorites are:  Russian Navy, OPI Red, and Purple with a Purpose.
12.  How do you remove your makeup at the end of the day?  Well, if there is any left after my run or workout, I use Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Acne Wash or AquaGlycolic face cleanser. 
13.  Do you feel prettier when you’re wearing makeup? No, not really... I do feel a little more comfy in my own skin though.
14.  Do you have any beauty tips that you could pass along?  Not really... I should probably read everyone else's advice and take it to heart!  If I don't start taking better care of my skin, I am gonna be one wrinkly old woman! 
Now it’s your turn to answer the questions!    And also be sure to come back and leave a link to your FMM post in the comments!  Happy Monday friends!


  1. I was laughing at the first answer. Another BE girl, I must give it a whirl. Russian Navy is so pretty!

  2. My toes are currently painted with OPI's Swimsuit Nailed It, which looks pretty similar to the Russian Navy. Pretty wild for me. My husband almost fainted LOL
